Roughyeds add support to social media boycott

ROUGHYEDS wish it to be known that the club is fully supportive of the massive sporting boycott of social media this Bank Holiday weekend.

Like many other clubs and governing bodies, including the RFL, Super League Europe, RLWC2021 and the Rugby League Players' Association, Roughyeds will withdraw from all their social media platforms from 3pm Friday to 11.59pm on Monday.

This will underline Oldham RLFC’s solidarity with everyone else involved in the boycott and add our club’s voice to the message that nobody should have to suffer abuse, racism or harassment on social media.

Apologies to anyone who might be inconvenienced by our boycott, but please acknowledge that we are doing our bit to back a very worthy cause and one that deserves the support of people the world over, both inside and outside the world of sport.

The service we provide to supporters on our Roughyeds website will NOT be affected by the boycott; only social media.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
